Sand Run Trail evening hike

About 4 miles, but a bit challenging because of the hills.  It will take about 1 1/2 hours.  Please note - there are a few Sand Run roads, so double check your GPS directions against the directions below.

Let's do the Mingo Trail - A nicely shaded forest trail which follows Sand Run Stream up the valley. We'll take the high trail just below the crest ridge on the way back.

Four legged critters are welcome

From Merriman Road in Akron, turn up North Portage Path for 1/4 mile and turn right onto Sand Run Parkway at the overhead flashing Orange Light. Come 1/2 mile up Sand Run Parkway to the sign indicating Shadow Field on the left. If you go past the visitor center on the right, you've gone too far.

The trail may be muddy or icy at points.  Hiking boots are recommended.  You may want a flashlight (though the ambient light is usually enough).

After the hike, we can go to Pub Bricco, 1841 Merriman Road, Akron, Ohio 44313 Phone: (330)[masked] for food and drinks.
